When she went back to Bill Tippin in 2019,along with "revoicing" the top, he replaced the saddle and nut, planed and recrowned the frets. I personally thought they were fine but Bill has his standards.

You ask the most interesting questions. I had not thought of this one.
Weight is 4.5 lbs.

Sorry - I'm sure you're being polite and substituting "annoying" for interesting. I consider DM'ing them to you, but then think maybe another member could be wondering the same thing.

Apologies!

When I said you ask interesting questions, I was expressing my admiration for the precision of your investigation. I have made mistakes in buying just because I didn't ask the right questions.
I lost money getting rid of a Cocobolo backed guitar that was way overbuilt.
I could have avoided that by asking about the weight before buying.
Questions about the neck profile and tone are also right up there.
Since you can't really play and hear the guitar before buying online asking the right questions becomes key.

Understood, thank you :-).

Here's another for you: what gauge strings do you prefer to use on it?
